Golden Teacher

First 3 E.P.s

No label

Released: 8th December 2015



Limited LP pressing of Golden Teacher's first 3 E.P.s.
One of the best phenomenons to emerge from the Glasgow underground in recent years, Golden Teacher have built up a myth that constantly evolves. Having built up a reputation for joyous, unpredictable live shows focusing on bacchanalian levels of dance and ecstasy, the first 12"s the group issued, on Optimo Music, sold out immediately. Containing as they do the missives of a group still finding their collective feet, probing in several directions at once but always with a mind on the brain-dance, the first recorded output of Golden Teacher begs the question, "how would they be able to top this?" Featuring early classics Party People and Love and their forays into more experimental territory - see the warped Sweat Bath with Saturn - "First 3 E.P.s" serves both as an introduction to the ways of the Teach but also presents an essential album of its own, regardless of its origin as a compilation. Where Golden Teacher will go now is anyone's guess, the band's constant evolution into the cosmos is one of its best characteristics, but as a document of time and space this collection is timeless. Also, the first time Golden Teacher has graved the compact disc. Rejoice!
